If one is planning on purchasing fuel for the vehicle, know on which side the tank is. The warehouse store fuel islands are one way traffic. I saw four people in a span of five minutes pull into an empty lane and discover the fuel pump is on the wrong side. Are people in too much of a hurry to notice?

What does this say about Costco members, in general, if this occurs in multiple places?

As I read the headline all I see are the chem-trails conspiracy crowds beginning to froth. Let me remind the masses that the proper term is not chem-trails, but contrails, as in "condensation trails". If you have ever breathed outside during a cold winter morning, you have created one too. High altitude air is a lot colder than surface air.
In a landmark revelation that’s about twenty years late, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has formally declared that greenhouse gas emissions from jet engines endanger the health of humans and the environment by contributing to climate change.

I vaguely remember a Call of Duty:MW3 scenario set at that mall. This troubles me...

[EDIT] I found the scenario. It was Arkaden and it was set in a mall in Berlin.

This shows how the 'religious right' is as secular as any other faction. They are letting pragmatism dominate over principles. Even if its long-term plan is to claim the GOP from the ashes of Trump, the ends never justify the means.
So recently an electoral and ideological fountainhead for the GOP, Evangelicals have given themselves over to a Philistine.

This may fall into the realm of 'be careful what you wish for'. There are many 501(c)(3) organizations on the Left. Rigging the system to benefit yourselves will help your opponents also. In fact, it would open the floodgates of money into the process by removing the need to maintain separate non-profit and PAC organizations.
Churches and other tax-exempt institutions are prohibited from political organizing, but Republicans want to change that.

My final tally:

Johnson (Libertarian) 90%
Stein (Green) 70%
Clinton (Democratic) 67%
Trump (Republican) 57%
Try this short quiz to see which 2016 Presidential candidate you side with.

I took the quiz and scored 94% Donald Trump. My question is this: how could the quizzer know Donald Trump's stand on any of these issues?

If I felt Trump agreed with me that much I would have not felt the need to tweet this:

"Clinton vs. Trump is Russian roulette with a round in every chamber; no matter how you spin it, pull that trigger … bad stuff happens."

I scored 78% Gary Johnson and single digits with the other candidates. That part I can believe.

In the criminal court system, prisoners can be released by DNA testing. They often get paid off too. But the family court system (and CPS, its attack dogs) play by its own corrupt rules. My only suggestion would be to pursue a civil fraud case because the paternity was deceptively misrepresented.

How can you insist that you are 100% right with God on social issues, yet hedge your bets on Trump? If you cannot discern whether or not Trump is part of God's Plan, what does that say about everything else you preach?
In a moment of candor on the floor of the Republican National Convention last night, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, a major figure in the ultra-conservative Christian wing of the GOP, admitted that he does not know whether Donald Trump, whom he had just endorsed for president, would govern as the sort of conservative he promises to be.

Read It Can't Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis.
Trump’s dark warnings and grandiose pledges that he alone can save the troubled nation sound an ominously authoritarian note.

Based on the description in the article, the case against the city is non-existent. What lawyer is going to waste time on this, unless they are hoping that the city will settle out-of-court? In that case, this is just a money grab at the expense of the taxpayers.

You only wanted to make a statement. Yet your actions had consequences for others, unrelated to your demands. Blocking one of only two bridges over the river for 3-4 hours was a selfish act and could have had dire outcomes. The other (open) bridge is old and narrow and cannot support the combined traffic flow. Your actions trapped innocent people several miles from any turnaround. Where is the justice in that?

The site is in a congested downtown with bumper to bumper traffic. Its parking tower lacks enough space for events, even at 0800 on a weekday.

Often the cashiers take orders faster than they can be fulfilled. The result is people milling about. It then becomes difficult to distinguish those who have not yet ordered from those who are waiting. This can cause some customers to be skipped or ignored.

I always enjoy how I am treated at the Eye Center. The exams are much more comprehensive than other places. They have found little details that were unnoticed for decades.

Friday evening dinner rush. Packed house. One waitress. It took a little over an hour from the time we walked into the place until pizza was delivered.
